Junkie’s Addiction – semantics

Splitting hairs in definitions, another J.K. babbling semantic stream. J and I were talking about addiction, and the difference between an addict and a junkie. The difference we came up with was that an addict's addiction doesn't interfere with their ability to function within society, whereas a junkie's addiction does. Bear in mind that addictions...

Rerun 006. The paradox of Empathy and Psychopathy

Is self-care selfish? Can taking advantage of one’s empathic nature lead them towards developing antipathy, apathy and then perhaps psychopathy?

19.DEC.2018@04:05AM – Publishing this drafty post.

This here is one of the very first posts I had written on WordPress. (the 6th post actually, now that I’ve gone back and counted, lol. ). I was reading a post Benebell Wen wrote about the paradoxical quandary of the empath and their empathy, the post I am referring to in question was late in 2017 maybe.


…all the way back in 16th August 2018

My partner and I had a discussion not too long ago about defining the difference between an empath and the feeling of empathy. Somewhere along the line it then morphed into the delineation between empathy and psychopathy.

Because the argument is not necessarily about ones empathic abilities but rather the sense of responsibility one places on themselves in relation to acting on behalf of their empathy.

Let me present to you Empathy and her shadow, Psychopathy. An infuriatingly inadequate exposition, limited by my terrible…

The sublime divinity of art.

The beginning of an idea of “art as the realm of the gods.”
Where gods are archetypal representations for inherent and universal human experiences and characteristics.

Modern Mystic Mother

You have Mario Savioni to thank for the publication of this blog post. A conversation (comment thread) we had reminded me about this half formed thingy I started writing last year… It is part of my personal philosophy of aesthetics. The nature of art, and how it is representative of the presence of the divine within humanity.

The passive form invites the active gaze. The masculine gaze is attracted to the subjective beauty. As “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, the voyeur may or may not be aware of the specific form which stimulated visual pleasure – if it is the light, the colour, or the form unto which the light befalls.

The gods and goddesses of mythology are real – that is, they are archetypal representations of aspects within all of us. They try to ‘speak to us’ but we don’t know how to understand their messages…

SeCreation. Sex me precious, I’m a fat bastard.

Narratology as allegory for the human condition.

Modern Mystic Mother

Programming my bear arms to wave to right frequency.

I make a ton of metaphors, jokes and overall references to the physical body. Like skin, hair, eyes, brain, genitals, flesh, bone, muscle, sinew, bodily fluids or excretions, lips, tongue, teeth, fingers. Sphincters!

I do so because I have a physical body and (unless I am grossly mistaken) I believe it’s something every person can agree with have in common. Excellent.

We all have material, physical form. Check.

Therefore, we are also surely going to have the following in common, too:

  • The need to eat food. Calories, nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
  • We need to drink water to maintain hydration for optimum functioning. Lubricate the joints and mechanisms of your rusty, busty cage.
  • We need to sleep. Rest, heal, recharge. Dreaming is a perk, remembering them is not a guarantee.
  • You wear some form of clothing.
  • You maintain some level of hygiene.
